Cam out rest of the year. Shocking news out Carolina. Three weeks after signing a new contract in Carolina, it appears Cam Newton has played his last snap in a Panther uniform. The news broke right after their game against Seattle, after it was discovered that Greg Hardy and his GF, were actually covering for the star QB in the alleged assault case against Hardy. It was Cam who was the actual assailant, even threatening to "take care of Hardy, like Hernandez would". Though the assault took place before he signed his current deal, it appears the Panthers will still be on the hook for the salary due to no "violent crime" termination clause. Panther owner Publik Drunk told reporters the QB would not play the rest of the year, and. reports are they will wait until the off-season before officially terminating his contract. Derek Anderson will take over the starting QB job and Joe Webb could see some time as well. Greg Hardy is not expected to face any punishment from the team or the league due to the circumstances in the case.
